Brauhaus Schmitz owner Doug Hager wants to do for German beer for Philadelphia what Tom Peters of Monk’s Cafe has done for Belgian beer. A lofty goal for sure, but in recent months he has brought some remarkable beers to Philadelphia and he’s not letting up. Tonight he is tapping some of the most celebrated beers from Passau, Germany for the first time in the Philadelphia region.
The eight beers come from three breweries located in the Southern Bavarian town; the oldest of which, Hacklberg Brauerei has been brewing since 1618.
The beers will be available through Sunday and can be paired with a special tasting menu from chef Jeremy Nolen.

Once again, last night brought to Philadelphia the glory, the pageantry and the weirdness that is the Foobooz Open Stove Night. At COOK, we gathered together our two teams of noble competitors–Kenny “Admiral Snackbar” Bush from Bistrot La Minette and Henrik “The Swedish Hammer” Ringbom from Brauhaus Schmitz–for a European showdown which pitted a Swedish-born chef cooking German food in an American city against an American-born chef working at a French restaurant who (for reasons of his own) decided to use last night as a chance to cook the Spanish food he loves so well.
Two chefs, two sous chefs, 8 courses and WAY too many drinks–that’s how these things work. And in case you missed the fun last night, don’t worry. We had COOK’s photo ninja Yoni Nimroad taking pictures for us: Preserving the thrill of victory, the agony of defeat and evidence of all the good grub consumed. So click through the jump to take a look at all the fun we had.

We have made them cook with Doritos and beer. We have taken away their sous chefs. We have fed them shots and given them ramen, made them use radishes as a main course and forced them to make sauces out of cheez (as pictured above). And why have we done this?
All in the name of entertainment, of course. Bread and circuses for the food-obsessed hordes. The Foobooz Open Stove nights have become Philly’s gladiatorial arena–the place where young cooks come to prove themselves against their knife-wielding comrades–and we have just confirmed who our two new contestants will be.
On Thursday, July 5, Kenny “Admiral Snackbar” Bush of Bistrot La Minette will stand against Henrik “The Swedish Hammer” Ringbom of Brauhaus Schmitz in another raucous, whiskey-laced Open Stove showdown at COOK, a European Battle Royale pitting France against Germany in a contest for culinary domination. And the best part? Right this minute, there are still tickets available.
So get over to COOK right now and get your seats. I promise you won’t be disappointed.
